CNBC got an inside look at United Airlines Flight Training Center in Denver. At nearly half a million square feet, this facility is one of the largest airline training hubs in the world. All of United's 12,000 pilots come through here for initial training and return every 9 months to stay up to date on flight procedures and safety protocols.
